This exciting fun-filled fantasy begins with Prince Liasis being kidnapped and turned into a snake. Wren, a lame pedlar-girl and Torrie, oldest of the Old Things of the Wild Forest, travel through mountains into the Wild Forest meeting sorcerers, goblins, a deadly dryad and wandering minstrel in an effort to rescue Prince Liasis. Meanwhile, King Liasis plots his own escape by winning a friend among his captor's goblin followers. Wren learns surprising truths about herself and the strangely powerful ornaments she makes to sell. This discovery assists them in freeing the prince and making him human again.
